The Red Devils have been handed a timely boost ahead of AC Milan showdown today with three key players returning for their Europa League clash against the Rossoneri. United will be boosted by the return of the trio of Edinson Cavani, David De Gea, and Paul Pogba, who have all been declared available for selection.
Manchester United has confirmed the news via their official website. However, Anthony Martial is not yet ready to return after suffering a knock in the first leg of their Europa League round of 16 ties.
“David de Gea is back in the squad after taking paternity leave to witness the birth of his first child, while Paul Pogba and Donny van de Beek return to bolster our midfield flexibility,” read the club’s official statement.
“Edinson Cavani is also available for selection once again, though Anthony Martial has not overcome the injury he picked up in the first leg.”
Amidst the club’s struggle for goals in their recent displays, the return of Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani in particular would come as a breath of fresh air for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Moreover, the Red Devils need to be at their best in Italy, with the tie against AC Milan still hanging in the balance.
Again, a crucial away goal would be well on United’s priority list and Edison Cavani would be eager to make a good account of himself following his return. The Uruguayan is also well familiar with the Rossoneri, having scored a couple of goals against them during his time in the Italian top-flight with Napoli.
